Gathering change. Give it a try. Invite someone. New Bible study.

Dear CCC Family,

We continue to strive to use online technology in the most effective way to encourage our church family and connect with new people. John, William, and I have been reading and listening to what the experts in online church suggest. One suggestion is that the message should be earlier in the service than it is when we meet in person. We will try it as an experiment. This Sunday the message will be early, before the singing, Lord’s Supper, and announcements. The message will begin about five minutes after the start time. We will try it for a week or two and see what we think.

The three times for our online Sunday gathering are listed below. If you haven’t tried the cccnyc.online.church option yet, give it a try this Sunday at 10:00am or 11:30am.

Invite someone to watch our Sunday gathering. It is a lot easier than inviting them to join you in person on a Sunday. They don’t have to leave home and they can wear their pajamas. Go here on Facebook. Then, share the post on your timeline or send it to a friend.

This Sunday I will introduce Core52, a simple way to help you gain a comprehensive understanding of the Bible. That announcement will come early in the gathering. Please be on time or look for it later.

Finally, check out the new virtual Bible Study described below.

Keep looking up. Jesus is always there.

Jeff

If Money Talked” Virtual Bible Study
If money talked, what would it say? You might be surprised that what it would say is pretty close to what Jesus did say two thousand years ago. In this four-session study, Andy Stanley offers an approach to money management that will make your life better and make you better at life. Whether you have a lot or a little, are a spender or a saver, you’ll find Andy’s insights challenging, refreshing, and extraordinarily practical. 
This class will be held on Zoom and will be facilitated by Crystal. Stay tuned for the start date. Email welcome@cccnyc.org if you are interested in this class.
